Sustainability for a Better Planet

The planet positive actions we take and innovations we make at Kohler stem from our belief that our best can (and must) always be better. We believe we can leave a better world for future generations. To reach a goal of net-zero environmental impact by 2035, we are committed to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across operations and zero waste to landfill, developing energy- and water-saving products, and galvanizing others to action.

The KOHLER WasteLab®

Applying nature’s waste-free cycles to our processes, the WasteLAB transforms recycled waste materials into meaningful products. The resulting tile collections not only contribute to a circular economy and our goal of zero waste to landfill; they are proof that our best truly can be better for our planet, our communities and the lives we touch.
